About This Project

This appears to be a very straightforward traditional portrait of 3 spaniels, but, the challenge for me was the middle Blenheim show dog was deceased, and the two little rescue dogs on either side were the only dogs available for the photo shoot. I wound up photographing these two from a number of angles, and working from old portraits of the middle dog. It was a challenge to get a believable perspective and likeness on all three – and capture their very different energies and personalities.
